Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause

Vivian Gandillon is a sixteen year old werewolf. She loves being one and running under the moonlight. However, she can't seem to get over her father's death, caused by other werewolfs that were being careless. Then, she falls in love with a human named Aiden. He is fascinated by magic. Meanwhile, back in the wolf pack, they are deciding who will become the new leader, since her father was the old one, and which female will become his mate. During the Ordeal to determine the leader, Vivian protects her mother from another woman and becomes the female who will get to be his mate. Vivian then decides she should reveal her true nature to Aiden because he would still love her but know everything about her. Now she can choose her lover. Should she tell Aiden about her true self, or stick with one of her kind?

I really fell in love with Blood and Chocolate as soon as I started reading it. I thought that it was a very creative story that many twists inside of it. Each character is very different but somehow they all fit together as friends, as lovers, or as enemies. I loved how Vivian was faced with different problems the whole story and she kept coming up with creative ways to deal with them. I recommend this book for anyone who likes fantasy or love stories.

Content: This book has a bit of violence, bad language, and sexuality.
